    I have been working at Ryanair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company is currently expanding, never a shortage of work and there is good job security. Very Keen to help you progress if you're capable.

    Cons

    It pays slightly less than other places and the benefits (health insurance ect) are almost non existent.

    Advice to Management

    C.P.D is key to career longevity, but stop trying to add inexperienced people and build them into key positions. 3 years isn't enough to learn what they'll need in the long run.
